Just for Fun - Only in Wisconsin

Greetings! I am REALLY enjoying this stamp set. The versatility of FUN scenes has been ENDLESS. This stamp set actually has the snowman facing in the opposite direction, so I stamped him on vellum and colored him - then flipped him over to face away from the girl!

Paper Craft Planet had their 12 Days of Christmas and this was their 8 Maids of Milking Challenge card that I made several days ago. The challenge was to make a card using a GIRL OR A COW - if you used both, you got "extra points." LOL I had the cow to Funny Farm from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, but compared to the girl the cow was too small. So I decided to make the snowman into Cow. Then because I always grab red and blue, I thought I would go outside of the box to two colors I rarely use - Glorious Green and Yoyo Yellow (my least favorite color of all.) Before I knew it, once my coloring was done - it looked like Green Bay Packer fans were all over this card. :)

Here are a few more details -
Stamp Sets: Winter Fun with Gretchen and Sam by SNS, Lovely As a Tree by SU
Cardstock and Ink: Black brilliance, vellum, Whisper White, Glorious Green. yoyo Yellow, Soft Sky and Copics
Accessories: Button kit from Hobby Lobby, Build a Brad, Mini Glue Dots

Be on the look out - when my Blog has 60,000 hits - I will be having some BLOG CANDY! :)

Have a great day!
